After four years of headlining his award-winning stadium tour “George Strait Country Music Festival,” Strait is heading back to arenas for his 21-date fall outing, September 12-November 2.
"We're going back to playing the arenas this year and I’m really looking forward to it," said Strait decidedly. "We definitely had a great time doing the stadiums but I’m excited about seeing some faces again. Not that 20,000-seat arenas are exactly intimate settings, but you can tell a difference and I think it will be a fun change of pace."
Joining Strait will be JoDee Messina who played the opening slot for Strait at his sold-out show in Memphis and Lafayette earlier this year.
Tickets for Dallas, San Antonio and Columbus, Ohio go on sale July 13. All other on-sale dates are TBA
Chevy Trucks and GM Card are returning as corporate sponsors.
